Visitor Tips and News About Suburban Home Replica of Graceland
ELVIS LIVES: this is great! House is in beautiful condition, the grounds are a little overgrown, But you can see the new owners of two months are TCB. I had the courage to ring the door bell and talk to a nice woman, who didn't know anything about Roadside America (we filled her in). We didn't get to see in the house, except the staircase (which is on the right instead of left). The gates are in beautiful working condition and the house even had its own limo out in front.[Marcia Olsen, 10/07/2003]
I don't know how I missed this one in my own backyard but you can bet I'll be driving out to see it this weekend. It's a replica Graceland mansion built 20 years ago in Orlando, complete with guitar shaped swimming pool, shag carpeting, and entrance gates just like the real one. Currently for sale at $550,000, the mansion has seven bedrooms and two three car garages.[Bob Cara, 08/18/2000]
Bob Cara sent a photo and updated us in April 2001 -- "When last I wrote you about it, it was for sale but the sign is down now so I'm not sure what the deal is." Jan. 2003: Tipster "Brad" wirtes: "After talking to some neighbor kids we heard that the original owner had died a few years ago and that it sat vacant for sale until December of 2003. The yard was overgrown, but the decorative gates and front of the house were still very nice. It appears the new owners are making attempts to restore the place to its original beauty. "
